Creating Islands of Sanity, laptop computer with view of ocean beachFRIENDLY REMINDER
In response to health concerns, Arts & Humanities has developed a Scent-Free Policy.  Scented products such as hairspray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches.  Instructors, students, staff and visitors are asked to not use these products when visiting the A&H office.  Arts & Humanities at Bellevue College is a Scent-free environment.  Remember, what seems like a light application to you can bring on a situation where someone is put into serious distress.  Please be mindful.  The biggest culprit is “perfume.”  Please read more.
